of oil giant moves closer to becoming the world's leading crude producer as details about a mega deal with a russian and british joint venture partner apparently monologues. alone thank you for joining our t.v. this saturday with me karen. well the libyan army and loyalist militias are preparing for the final assault on the city of bani walid where supporters of the old regime have been besieged for more than two weeks the deadly battle comes a year after the capture and of longtime leader moammar gadhafi and the nato military campaign just to warn you some of the images we're about to show are graphic over a dozen people including children have been killed and many more injured in attacks during the blockades residents say they are short of medicine food and. turmoil and
bombing knowing it has seen as is seen as just one sign of the continuing disarray that has reigned in libya since the western backed to a halt as you can now reports. a year after the killing of warmer khadafi not only has the new government of libya immediately illegal to criticize the revolution of last year but a group of malicious affiliated with the country's defense ministry has be shelling parts of the country which are considered qaddafi strongholds that bombing it from the air and rockets because many would need was one of the towns which stood against the intervention of the outside world in body while the local media report that the strikes have killed around a dozen people including children but apparently the people of bani walid are not the only ones persecuted by various militia groups in libya we saw the total wiping out of the thirty thousand strong town or to want to go many are black libyans which the misrata brigades which are also laying siege to bani walid call
themselves the brigades for the purging or black scheme it's such as that wonderful humanitarian and freedom loving. and discourse that they wiped out the town they've been chasing the people toward the civil war has left libya shredded in pieces with radical islamists taking advantage of the chaos basically what's happening is that in different cities here we pointed out the main ones tripoli is in town misrata each of them has their own army of their loosely united as the so-called libyan national shield at the same time they're not really under the control of the new defense ministry they're basically on their own according to various reports most of them are even suspicious of the new government in tripoli on top of that division you also have one hundred forty tribes in the country one hundred forty tribes many of them have long running grievances against each other and they're located very close to each other for example the town of bani walid that we
mentioned in the report is not even two hours away from misrata so maybe all the food and lawlessness people in those places no anything can happen to them last year coalition forces armed libyans to the. d.c. in order to oust moammar gadhafi today the country is flooded with weapons of all kinds and this thing made it twenty million weapons are still freely circulating in libya that's in a country of six million people it's roughly three guns per person today there are multiple assassinations around benghazi different parts of libya where people are settling scores of all sorts of stripes it's chaotic forces in libya well those are the weapons of the most they have the chance is not to be just is either to the tribal or the. politics despite the ongoing atrocities and chaos up until this september washington had the revolution in libya check because the foreign policy victory for president obama after all the u.s.
provided most of the foreign power which led to the capture and the killing of the libyan leader. yes we came we saw he died. but only after the tragic attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and the murder of the american ambassador did leave you come back into the spotlight it raises the question for the administration why didn't you see this coming if there was intelligence about the growing presence of al qaeda in eastern libya we have an election coming up and no one wants to take blame for messing up the arab spring president obama's most recent remarks suggested that his administration is not finished in libya we are going to find out who did this and we're going to hunt them down because one of the things that i've said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with americans we go after them the obama administration has received congressional approval to allocate money for a special unit reportedly of some five hundred people who will allegedly be training counterterrorism forces in libya also there are anonymous reports that the
cia is asking for more drones specifically for libya not of this sounds new drone strikes training forces in foreign nations but past experience has shown when the u.s. goes about. meaning up a mess it often gets even messier in washington i'm going to check on. political analyst dr abraham a lucia's that it was the implosion of central government a year ago that led to chaos and a heavy influx of extremists the involvement of western countries was the source of trouble for libya as a whole we have seen that the state has become dismantled as happened in iraq and somalia whatever the nato has walked or u.s. troops of walked and in fact there is not all of law and libya who brought an al qaida and to libya and now into syria again it's the same western involvement with the support of but through dollars from qatar and saudi arabia that is handing
the country over to a group of fun out there criminals who are hell bent on on blood torture slitting throats and what have you bringing the country a buck and to medieval darkness so. we have seen very clearly what these people are aiming to do they want to punish when there were leads for its stance against the invasion of libya by nato this is a form of collective punishment against the whole population for standing up for the end the pendants and the sovereignty of their country. lebanon has becoming golfed and protests triggered by the death of a top security official in friday's car bombing in the capital some rallies have turned violent with two people reportedly injured after the army opened fire in one of the roads blocked with burning tires and leading opposition group is demanding the prime minister quits warning the unrest will continue until there is
a lebannon spring with some all across some ways among eight people killed in the blast that devastated a christian route and left almost a hundred injured he was a hardline opponent of president assad which has led some lebanese politicians to blame the terrorism on syria that beirut based expert on the middle east says such claims are being dictated by politics. already we have now the political element coming into play some elements of the march fourteenth movement which is known to be anti bush. even before it was known who was killed in this explosion very quickly pointed the finger at the syrian government now with us on the head of intelligence security who apparently has of being killed more targeted that is known to be actually a robot fourteen is known not to be one of the supporters not to be very very likable person or those who are in government so i think now this would only lead to more and more pingers from march fourteenth i mean from their west and how is it
being pointed at syria the question which must be raised in all of these cases is a who benefits from such an act i think you know if the syrian government does go ahead although we don't have any information but if it does go ahead with these acts i think it's only in the during itself in committing suicide so it is that is the syrian government as such is that as to what sort of a government or i myself don't see so. for more expert opinion on the possible connection between eleven and last and conflict raging in syria you can head to r.t. dot com where there is more video coverage and add your voice on who you think is to blame in our arm line discussion. the israeli military has seized a boat on route to gaza carrying international activists. eight it was the latest attempt to breach the blockade of the palestinian coastal territory imposed by israel five years ago let's now talk to a spokeswoman for the swedish firm that organized the aid victoria strand joins us
now from stockholm thank you so much for tori for joining r.t. now have you heard from anyone on the ship about how the interception actually happened yes we had a telephone contact about ten fifteen this morning until ten thirty and they were boarded on international waters the first. two were surrounded by five or six military wessels and off through our armed and masked so jurors who boarded a ship all communication was broken. for sure this was only international and this was a peaceful ship with peace for. now all previous attempts by activists to reach gaza on a humanitarian mission have failed what made you think that this one would actually work. we find not only we bit also the international community finds the blockade and the siege of gaza as legal and unfair and this creates lots of
suffering and sooner or later israel has to the de meeting accepted death to dislocate illegal and until don't work what we can do is civilians who can take our responsibility and go to garside to show them our solidarity and that they are seem so we have to challenge this siege as long as the international community doesn't do so you know the w.h.o. to save the children united nation european union everyone says that the siege is counterproductive but no one is doing anything about that so we have to take civil action against thought because there are a concern on your part that this mission might actually have a tragedy i mean in two thousand and ten nine activists were killed in a raid by israeli forces here so i know i wasn't at the two thousand and ten wasn't
a swedish weak ship and this was a horrible attack on civilians that were armed. all people on board are aware of the risk they are taking and they are doing that anyhow they are doing that because they want to show their solidarity to the people to the people or to the palestinian singles up because the palestinians also have you know if they are human beings they must have the same human rights as other people. we we had also on board we had at least five people of jewish or region three of them israel and citizens belonging to the peace movement we also had five members of parliament from different european countries that what lies ahead are you planning more similar message missions such as these in the future. i think it is necessary until israel ends. around this because this is not helping anyone
it's not for the people in israel it's not for the palestinians and it has nothing to do with the security of israel because weapons are floating in through tunnels and caves not only import a blockade all export which means that the palestinians can't live because they called exporting anything from gaza has nothing to do with the security of israel. victorious travel from the farm ship to girls or sweden or to organize the admission thank you for turf or time thank you. russian oil giant for us now is a step closer to becoming the world's biggest listed producer firms understood to be on the verge of getting the british share of the b.p. joint venture and one of the most expensive industrial deals ever more from artie's pier oliver. well it's a deal it's been a long time in the coming and it would seem according to the front page of russian newspaper commerce on saturday that it has been done now that deal will see role
sniffed the buyout fifi's fifty percent share of the company t n k b p just how much that's going to cost though well initially b.p. had said they wanted twenty eight billion dollars for their fifty percent share it seems that they've come to an agreement somewhere around the market seventeen billion dollars in cash and thirty percent of ross next stock this is all part of process plan to try and take over all of t.n. k b p they're currently indication with b.p.'s russian partners a all to buy out the other half of the company if they can do that then ross therefore become the largest publicly traded oil company in the world but this well no reward without risk in the risk what role sniffed is taking in buying out b.p. is that they willing could debts of upwards of sixty billion dollars to put that in a little context that says as much as some european nations have in debt nationally . so it's an awful lot of money there
a lot of money in debt that will be taking on dell be hoping that the oil price remains high so that they can get a good solid return on their investment in terms of b.p. and what that means for them here in russia it's certainly not the end for them they just they didn't want to be out of russia they just wanted an end to their partnership in t a k b p what they really want is to do business with rolls left and to get a slice of roles they have to be tension lucrative oil exploration rights for the arctic so this is all going to continue on for a little bit longer deals will be done between rosneft and b.p. bobs in the future but when we get confirmation that this is certainly going through a bring it all here i'll take. the latest right now thousands of people are marching through central london we have live pictures from the british capital right now they are protesting against the austerity measures passed going the sentiment to be around. europe will be live in london throughout the day with our correspondent nic robertson. now listen our viewpoints but i'm warning you that if you keep
screwing up like this we'll show you some different treatment spinster of the rats and paintball rounds fired at a russian premier league team by masked man also ahead. made it mitt romney win by moving the candidate. at that then by that several parties in new york asking which presidential candidate is taking voter advances in a close race or whether the choice is out of their hands. as his day starts at five am even earlier in the winter tending to his flock of story hundred sheep in the mountains and pains of t.v. thirty five years old it wasn't the life he dreamt of having studied accounting but he dition unfamiliar duty dictated that he would take on the care of these animals after his father has just made camp at their winter found stage setting up his ute

a not so warm welcome players from russian premier league football club have been shelled with paint ball bullets during a training session no one was hurt but it's deeply angered fans and players throughout russian soccer farmer explains what might be behind the attack. dinara as a club have issued a statement that says that these were the actions of idiots that an arm of fans have nothing in common with those that were involved but it is important also to stress that this has happened just a month after an extraordinary episode that happened at the training ground just as i say four weeks ago and then the club did allow some supporters to address the place and issue violent traits in the hope it would improve performances and results the whole thing was recorded and put on you tube which we translated for you. now listen rb you guys i'm warning you if you keep screwing up like this we'll show you some different treatment if we catch any of you in a nightclub enjoying yourselves the way garani and
a boa spotted doing doing all of you hang out all the time will be out of you right there on the sports minutes so i mean once you've heard that you perhaps can understand why they denominate feel it is a vision that simulates would come out day in state at some of the players are feeling frightened what's more the union for russian players and coaches says it believes the nama classic up is actually encouraged fans are given a signal to fans that it is a cagey issue to the players in addition to that the incident that took place on friday leaflets were also left at the ground showing faces of war in our midst foreign plays and alongside their faces were the words we do not want charity in the villages anymore it would be no warnings if you read it read it so you can say sounds very intimidating stuff on the general point you could argue that perhaps the foreign plays were shown were highlighted there because they are among the highest at the club the number of fans the how after strike to the moment because
it is it seen with great history in russia but it has lost what it has only won three of the last nine games in the russian crimea league and it did you see the bottom in the table at the risk concern amongst the players for what's happened as we say over the last twenty four hours but also that. i mean on the back of the series since it into reached broadly in stuttgart you call it it took place for the training ground last month. and you got to ex-pat at a camp in st petersburg is raising eyebrows this is somewhat bizarre campaign to promote tolerance is supposed to help those coming to make a living in russia but it's under fire for its migrant stereotypes. plus out of the picture we report on spain's plans to ban filming or photographing the police at work. and also anger has also reached the british capital where thousands are marching against the painful measures being forced on
them prime minister david cameron recently warned of more painful decisions for the struggling economy belfast and glasgow will also see protests this saturday journalist neil clark explains why people are so disillusioned with the governing coalition and right now you're looking at live pictures right out of london. i can't recall in my lifetime a government becoming so unpopular so quickly when they came in we did a year you know people they took the anger because what's happened is that the paint not being affected by the one percent are doing very well thank you very much whereas the burden is calling on the poor the disabled who have their benefits cut the government all they can do is save going to keep trying to cut cut cut to make it worse but of course one percent doing ok government represents the one percent there's real real was hatred of this government now because it's not just i can't tell us it seems to be
a very out of touch arrogant really arrogant couple of very rich people you know a government. and i think i can't see david cameron being reelected in twenty fifteen i just can't. next hour on our team max and stacy take a closer look at the one percent and simple pleasures of life in their tax havens. about that to around washington d.c. filled with chocolate oh i see swiss chocolate and my beautiful girl in the mountains with nothing but genetically modified and there cow bells ringing home the harvest of the laundered money for the mexican drug cartels join me up in the mountains stacey we're all sitting together like mating and other is the soon to of music is beautiful all.
it's still a tough call as to who'll win the last presidential election so a lot hinges on monday's final t.v. debate been in new york task whether the contender mitt romney has the chance to pull a key swing state from under president obama's no. electronic voting machines owned by a company with strong republican ties are set to count the vote in ohio which very well could determine the outcome of the two thousand and twelve us presidential election so is there a chance that mitt romney could steal this election this week let's talk about that do you think it's possible that mitt romney could steal the election i think it's very possible i think it's close and it's going to come down to the last minute so it's going to be something a little like that that could sway it which is unfortunate but yeah. a lot of people don't even know about it they just think oh well he won so that that yeah what do you do about it all makes you go vote for brock. about
a right now let's say about the people on the street and they talk about this i mean if mitt romney wins a movie macand. if that them fall. that simple one of my ficus told says one day they'd be the third party would win the election no it didn't matter it doesn't matter where the you know greed libertarian conservative whatever just to break the halls of the two party system and if he's a she that wouldn't be a bad either right so i want to magically state he says i used to brag does it concern you that there's things like best in our country in general or sure of that kind of thing shouldn't shouldn't really happen. but i guess it does it happens a lot of places you would never find out about you know why don't we find out about this stuff why isn't there more transparency about what's really going on because like you say there's lots of money and whether or not you think romney's going to steal the election the bottom line is both evoluting machines in ohio are owned and operated by a company whose employees have given hundreds of thousands of dollars to the romney
campaign so they very well could be determining who wins ohio a state that often determines who wins the election. special coverage of the battle for the white house starts on monday bringing even more analysis and there's are two dotcoms up close to help the fall the latest events and the run up to the fault. will there be a war on iran china friend or foe is missile defense offensive where troops candidates the u.s. election of pope close october twenty second on our team. and coming up in a few minutes on nuclear ambitions and what the country's real intentions could be right after this break. a.
